A Good Compliment by Steve Colori
“You look really hot in that shirt, Daniel,” Greg said.
“Thanks, man. It’s one of my favorite shirts,” Dan replied.
Greg continued down the hall to his corner office.
“Hey, what’s up with that?” Aaron asked. He was wearing a dress shirt tucked into black pants.
“What do you mean? The man gave me a compliment.”
“Yeah, but that’s weird,” Aaron replied.
“I know he likes men. It’s the same as me liking women.” Dan turned the corner.
“I dunno what I’d say if he said that to me,” Aaron laughed.
“Maybe just say ‘thanks’ and leave it at that.”
